Dark Horse Announces Camilla d’Errico ‘No Ordinary Love’ Limited-Edition Bust

One of the brightest stars of pop-surrealism, Camilla d’Errico is known as an artist, designer and graphic storyteller. Now, she is set to debut perhaps her most collectible item yet, as Dark Horse is very proud to bring forward her first deluxe sculptural piece, an intensely-detailed bust based upon her painting “No Ordinary Love”.

“’No Ordinary Love’ is a piece that is very dear to me,” Camilla d’Errico reflected, “ its the visual interpretation and expression of my feelings for my ‘one and only’, so you can imagine how exciting this is that this particular piece was chosen!”

Slated for a late June release, the meticulously-painted sculpture measures approximately 8” tall and 5” in width, making it a diminutive but exquisite jewel of a statuette, packaged in full-color collector box with a Certificate of Authenticity.

The beautiful sculpture is set to make its public debut at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City for Toy Fair 2012. Upon release, this piece will be strictly limited to only 950 numbered copies for worldwide distribution, and is sure to sell out.

“Translating Camilla’s work into three-dimensions was a challenge,” Dark Horse’s David Scroggy observed, “but with a lot of help from Camilla and the skilled artisans at Gentle Giant Studios, we were able to arrive at a piece that is unmistakably d’Errico, with all the subtle nuance and details of sculpture and paint application that her audience would expect.”

Camilla d’Errico supervised every aspect of the sculpting and paint application as the piece took shape, providing additional reference, commentary and color notes throughout the prototyping process.

The painting “No Ordinary Love” was included in the Dark Horse published art book of d’Errico’s work, Femina and Fauna, which has gone into multiple printings, being found in a diverse array of retail venues around the world.

Be sure to keep up-to-date with all of Camilla’s projects by following her on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.

 

 

Customized Frank Kozik Happy Labbit for Stan Sakai Exhibit

If you didn’t know, it’s the Year of the Rabbit! And to help celebrate this special year the Japanese American National Museum is hosting a huge exhibit for Stan Sakai’s ‘Usagi Yojimbo’ – one of the most well-respected comic book titles of all time, and a huge influence on Japanese American culture.

Check out photos of the exhibit at JANM, some of which come from GoGreenMachine.org, an awesome blog dedicated to ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ and all the news that surround the brand:

Like ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ Stan Sakai’s ‘Usagi Yojimbo’ was part of the so called “Black & White” comic revolution in American during the 1980s that helped spawn more creator-owned rights.

Even the famous Marvel Comics editor Stan Lee contributed to the exhibit!

By now you’re probably thinking, “That’s cool, but what does that have to do with Camilla?!” Well, the museum has partnered with Kid Robot for an auction of originally customized Frank Kozik Happy Labbits, and Camilla is one of the contributing artists! Proceeds will go to help fund JANM, which is a great place to see amazing art.

The first image below is of a Labbit by Stan Sakai himself! The rest, by Camilla, are photos of a character called “Radioactive Puffin Juice.” Hope you like them!
